    I re-read through some of your blog the other day and one thing i noticed about your situation is the older posts are all about training ‘with’ people, going to races and being’ amongst’ it being part of a family, enjoying the ride with others. Slowly this disappears a little as the years tick by and the stress you put on yourself gets bigger and bigger. You’re an amazing wman who has achieved so much whilst being a mum, a friend, a wife. I hope this year you can step back and ‘enjoy the ride’, you deserve it!! :)

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” -Teddy Roosevelt

    This is my first time reading your blog and I admire you keeping it real. This post reminded me of this quote and that You are in the arena and it takes great courage to stepback, re-eVALUEate, and get back in the game with fresh perspective. All my best for a great season, and feel free to be in touch if you ever want/need support.
